Can I apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits for mesothelioma?

Yes, if you are not old enough to be collecting Social Security retirement benefits, you can apply for SSD benefits for mesothelioma. Both pleural mesothelioma and peritoneal mesothelioma are considered Compassionate Allowances (CAL) conditions, which means SSD claims can be resolved in a matter of weeks.

It is also important to note that veterans with mesothelioma can apply for both Social Security Disability benefits and VA benefits at the same time.
